Looking for an 06 from reputable dealer, yet decent price

The 06 goes for $210-230 on eBay, but with shipping from Japan. Are there any stores that are selling it legitimately for the $250 mark? I see adorama and B&H are both selling it for $300. Any other options?

Charles.

Amazon's got it for $264, but it's from a third-party seller:
Amazon.com : PENTAX Q mount tele zoom lens 06 TELEPHOTO ZOOM : Camera Lenses : Camera & Photo

I don't think you'll find it for less than $299 at an authorized dealer since those dealers are by definition required to respect MAP pricing. However, if you want to get it from B&H or Adorama, I'm still there will be a nice rebate in the fall, as there always is.

I took a chance and ordered it from a Taiwanese dealer. $230 with expedited shipping. I know the 100% feedback can be gamed by a clever person, but I figured it was worth the risk. I'll let you know how it goes.

I got mine from a 3rd party US dealer but it had focus problems and the supplier was sold out and didn't have any replacement lenses so off it went to Pentax they replaced it and the new one is great.

Good to hear, Hans. Many have recommended the 06; looking forward to using it.

That's what I did also about 3-4 months ago, 150 ish I think it was, in the UK from Taiwan. Good transaction and worked out fine. I see I can get it for 136/$229 now, but I'm still very happy.

Tracking showed it left Taiwan yesterday, and departed Tokyo this morning. So far, so good.
